Herceptin after Masectomy?

My tumor was HER2 positive with negitive nodes . I had a bilateral Mastecomy with Diep Flap reconstuction.  Is there still a possiblity to get Cancer in other places due to the Her2 involvment?  Do you recommend Herceptin as a treatment?

The discussion would be best had with your Oncologist who knows all the details of your particular case. Mastectomy does not mean that you are 'home free" when it comes to having a recurrance or even another primary cancer. Regards .....
